Abstract
- In Rwanda the rebels of the Patriotic Front resume their shelling of government positions. Images of massacres still just as harrowing.
- A humanitarian woman showing a child with an amputated hand: "You see? Can you imagine that? [She then points to another child on her hospital bed] For this child, it's a machete [She walks to another bed] Now where is the little girl? She saw her whole family massacred, she is the only survivor". Angelique is nine years old.
- Vana is a nurse. Every day she improvises herself as a doctor here in this school in the north of the country which has become a precarious war hospital where she tries to save the leg or the arm of one of these young children.
- Also victims of the massacres, the war in Rwanda spares no one. Quite simply because you are not part of the same ethnic group, Hutu or Tutsi.
- On the roads as in the swamps, corpses. Epidemics are now feared. The bodies are burned and piled up in mass graves. While fighting continues around Kigali with heavy weapons between the Rwandan Patriotic Front, with a Tutsi majority, and the government army.
- Gone is the fragile hope of a unilateral ceasefire which was to come into effect this weekend [of May 7 and 8]. The airport still in the hands of the UN is even bombed.
- There are at least 200,000 dead in Rwanda and refugees continue to flee to neighboring countries.
